Dark Energy’s Giles Ripley directs the new campaign for Doritos to launch their new partnership with Burger King.

How do you improve on a perfect triangular tortilla chip? You smother it in Whopper goodness of course! ‘Whopper Disbelief’ captures the mind-blowing reality of the nation’s newest snack. Back off ready salted! There’s a new crisp in town and one thing's for certain, it’s going to get people talking!

Working with post-house Rascal, Ripley takes us on a flavour-filled journey, as we see people consume their first bite of this beefy beast. Ripley is best known for delivering great casting and en pointe comedic performances and this film is a great example of just that.

Dark Energy founder and Executive Producer, Matt Brown comments, ‘This was a fun one to work on. We knew as soon as we read the brief that Giles would be a great fit and it’s always a pleasure to work with the team at Sip and Bites/PepsiCo. It’s certainly made the office snacks more interesting!
